Job Description

In February of 2011, LiquidCMS won the contract to convert the Canadian Transportation Agency's public site into Drupal.

  • import of site's existing content including over 30,000 "rulings" (bilingual)
  • Ruling Manager with custom side-by-side bilingual editor interface
  • custom Proactive Disclosure management including configurable, scheduled publications of disclosures
  • extensive use of Faceted Search for the site content including:
    • fixes for Views support and i18n (bilingual)
    • adding support for our custom Published Time module
  • contribution of numerous patches to both the Simplenews and Notifications modules for better support of i18n
  • extensive site wide use of Panels to provide client with a very flexible page layout scheme
  • custom "subscription" interface for users to tie in custom Notifications and Simplenews signup pages
